to the democrats in the next presidential election is governor chris christie of new jersey. recently the nra took out an add saying that president obama is a hypocrite because he sends his children to school protected by armed guards and that he doesn't want armed guards at other schools. christie didn't like that ad by the nra and said this. >> don't be dragging people's children into this. it's wrong. and i think it demeans them. and it makes them less of a valid, trusted source of information on the real issues that confront this debate. >> so what did you think? >> well, a reasonable objection to the nra, remember, he is from new jersey, a blue state. he has got to get reelected this year. and he has a legitimate beef with the ad. i frankly think the underlying point of the nra ad accurate one. there is is elite in america which is comfortable with having guards in private schools and is dismissive of the idea that we ought to have people with, you know, law enforcement officials with guns available in other schools as well. is he very, has a lot of people in public life are sensitive about a

coming from the right is any indication, the president has a major fight on his hands. the nra has labeled him an elitist hypocrite and called out his daughters who receive secret service protection. yesterday senator ted cruz accused the president of exploiting the murder of children to push through gun control legislation, and then there are the real nuts out there. a movement of people who say that the sandy hook tragedy was a hoax. the real purpose was to create a political environment to take away all our guns. the american public is largely on board with at least some of the president's agenda. in a new nbc news/"wall street journal" poll, more than half, 56%, say laws covering the sale of firearms should be stricter. so what realistically can the president do? david corn is washington bureau chief for "mother jones," joy reid is managing editor of thegrio.com, and both are msnbc political analysts. joy, how large should he be looking? >> i think the president needs to go in with a large package obviously, but when you talk to individual lawmakers, particularly on the house s
's clear the proposals from the task force will be running head on into the nra. >> we know that it is -- there is no silver bullet. >> with vice president biden's task force the focus is starting to turn to what, if anything, can get passed with a congress in gridlock. but republican senator chuck grassley sounded positive about restricting high powered gun magazines and requiring background checks. >> i think we have to do things to make sure the database of the fbi has all of the information so people can't buy guns that shouldn't have guns. >> the vice president laid out some of the ideas emerging from his task force on thursday but did not mention a new assault weapons ban stirring speculation that the white house is dropping the proposal but the white house says that's not so. an administration spokesman told cnn avoiding this issue because it's been politically difficult in the past is not an option. that's despite what will be fierce opposition from the nation's top gun lobby, the national rifle association. >> i do not think there's going to be a ban on assault weap
with the nra at tomorrow's meeting? >>> minutes from now, new york's governor andrew cuomo will announce a proposed ban on assault weapons. >>> and he's now a cover boy. new jersey's governor gracing "time" magazine. >> one thing i hope everyone in america now clearly understands, new jersey, both republicans and democrats, will never stand silent when our citizens are being short changed. >>> developing now in lower manhattan, piers are reopening after dozens are injured today when a ferry boat made a hard landing during the rush hour commute. >>> and back in the swing of things at the state department, but look how hillary clinton responds when asked if she's looking forward to retirement. >> i don't know if that's the word i would use, but certainly stepping off the very fast track for a little while. >> and what's missing from this picture? we'll discuss. good day, i'm andrea mitchell live in washington. from joe biden at the white house to chris christie in new jersey, andrew cuomo in albany, there's new energy for a comprehensive approach to gun violence control. chris cillizza, an
't believe how that newspaper is responding. that will be new at 10. and also, the top of the hour, the n.r.a. calls for armed guards in every school and now one town in new jersey, following through with its plans to put guns in schools starting today. back to nicole, we've got the dow up 230 points, i've got to believe that apple is a huge winner today. >> it sure is. just like all 30 dow components that have up arrows today. apple is up nearly 4% and that's a gain of over $21. the reason why, well, first of all, you have the january effect. everybody's jumping in to buy and second, it's a great day on wall street because of what we saw in washington, and a new iphone or iphone six? that's what apple-- applications are finding the app usage logs, and identifier of an iphone 6.1 according to a tech website. get ready for the next apple product, everybody? >> do you remember, nicole, i think only a matter of a week, week and a half, two weeks tops, we opened the show saying did apple crack below 500, yes, it did, 499 and change, i think. >> right, right. stuart: and now. >> well, it's doing w
the problem as you pointed out of straw purchases which happens quite a bit. and the nra has opposed any efforts to crack down on straw purchasers and to do anything on the enforcement side. for instance, the background check is inadequate and has holes in it. the n raz has opposed microstamping of bullets that are important for case where is you have straw purchases. the nra has opposed the atf from doing more than one visit to a gun shop in any given year which is an invitation to unscrupulous gun dealers. there are so many places in which our gun laws invite criminals and terrorists. the availability of the 50 caliber rifle that anybody involved in law enforcement or counterterrorism says is a menace and invitation to terrorists in our society. the fact the nra opposes any kind of regulations or laws dealing with weapons like that shows you what the nra wants is a system that will invite criminals, terrorists, and others to reap the kind of gun violence that we're seeing. since newtown occurred, there's been 396 gun homicides. 26 children have been killed since newtown. where is the m
tough decision. they stay with the nra and they endanger their re-election because in those districts, 70%, 880% of the people want these sensible measures. they want background checks for everyone, no exceptions. they want high capacity magazines band. they want assault rifles banned. it's going to be a real test all over this country. >> michael steele is here. michael, you're a reasonable guy obviously. let's look at these numbers. "the washington post" numbers on gun show background checks, 88% support. this is a new "washington post" poll here. overwhelmingly support these. 88% support gun show background checks which we don't have really today. 76%, three-quarters approve the gun checks when buying ammo. 71% say yes to a federal gun database. that's important. 65% support a ban on high capacity magazines, and 58% support a ban on assault weapons. it gets tougher about the assault weapon ban and i think that's why harry reid, the head of the democratic party in the senate, is nervous about submitting it to the congress because he figures it won't pass the house. >> two points. on
'll meet with advocates for sportsmen and gun ownership groups. we're also told the nra will be a part of these meetings. more meetings are expected down the road with representatives from hollywood and game industry. "the washington post" reports the vice president's plan is designed to be big, comprehensive. new jersey's governor chris christie says that's the only way to get it passed. >> if it was comprehensive, if it was comprehensive, there's no doubt in my mind that we could come to an area of compromise. but it's got to be comprehensive. and if it isn't, then you're not -- you're going to have the same kind of good luck in washington you've had all along. >> biden is hashing out a plan on the national level, there's move on the state level, too. this afternoon, new york governor and drew cuomo will propose one of the country's strictest bans on assault weapons for this state. in connecticut governor dan malloy announced 16 councils looking at gun safety and gun violence prevention. leather bring in jackie kucinich and "washington post" journalist david millbane. >> good morning
their fight against the nra. >>> good to be with you here on this tuesday. i'm brooke baldwin. and i want to begin with the plane boeing says will define the future of the air travel. but for the last month or so, if you've been following this with us, the 787 dreamliner has made most of its headlines really for all these mechanical problems. here is just the latest, just a couple of hours ago, this japan airline, 787, was preparing to leaf above then when it started leaking fuel. so guess what happened? flight had to be canceled. and just yesterday morning, same airport, boston's logan airport, small fire broke out on yet another japan airline 787, just about 30 minutes after its arrival from tokyo. all the passengers and crew, they had already left the plane, but there is still a lot to talk about when we talk about what is supposed to be the revolutionary jet. let me begin with sandra endo, watching today's issue for us from washington. sandra, what happened now? >> yeah, brooke. a new day, a new problem for boeing's marquis airplane, the dreamliner, just before noon us is, the pilots
participating in sporting events with the nra where these assault rifles are used. he could ban funding of certain programs. there are ways he can work around the edges of gun control, but i cannot see how he would ban weapons outright. >> first of all, reality check. an executive order cannot supersede the constitution. so everyone just chill out. we have a lot of record as paul just said, of executive orders being done -- w. had 291 executive orders. again, reality check. in terms of what the president could do, in some ways, it's consistent with what the nra calls for. three things the president could do. one, prosecute criminals who lie on their background checks. 71,000 people lied on their background checks in 2009. the justice department only prosecuted 77 of them. less than 1%. that's one thing the president could do, say, look, let's prosecute that more aggressively. number two, there's another one, national institute of criminal background checks. this happened after virginia tech and the nra was instrumental in pushing for this. it said we need to make sure that mental backgr
, the nra comes out saying, oh, now they'll come and take away your guns and the industry profits from that and teachers and other that is profit from being invested in those companies say, hey, maybe this is like blood money. maybe we should not be part of those companies. so is this a divestment strategy that's a morality play or can you have an impact on the gun industry by doing this? >> i'm sure we can have an impact. this industry is rot on the the core. essentially making it easier for people to get the hands on the weapons even if they're used in massacres or shootings like we heard about in atlanta. business as usual is not acceptable. and we change things in part through the legislative group and has an impact where the money is. public pension fund money or shaming these big investment houses in to getting out of the guns and ammunition business. here in new york city, the dirty dozen, 12 big firms between them over 1.6 million in investments in guns and ammunition. we want to get the money out of the industry. by the way, the industry funds the nra. if the nra has a chokeho
that is sold, the nra ought to give coupons to "the book of eli" and get "the road," which is a great book. of course, zombies, people eating people, end of the world-type stuff. >> okay. so we will get to this ridiculous testimony on capitol hill as well as some of the powerful testimony in just a moment. i want to do these other stories first. you have to stay with me here. come on, now. >> they had a bushmaster. they tried to eat them, lock and load. >> what do i do? >> he almost died in the driveway. he almost -- denzel almost died, if he had a bushmaster or anyone -- a rocket launcher -- >> come here, now. it's all right. >> have you seen "the book of eli"? >> i have. it's a great underrated movie. >> you know what else i saw? i just saw it. denzel, man, "flight." >> that's good. that's good. flying upside down. >> there are good movies this year. >> flying upside down. >> including -- >> you know -- >> okay. >> the stewardess had a bushmaster, she could have shot him before he got on the plane. >> now i'm going to do the top story. cut his mike. today the white house is facing a new
could be a very difficult meeting tomorrow at the white house. the nra association ceo wayne lapierre, is sending the director, the lobbyist for nra's wing to represent the lobbying group in a meeting with the vice president. the president also in attendance, and there will be representatives from walmart, which first declined to attend the meeting due to what they absurdly called a "scheduling conflict." they released a letter, saying knowing our leaders couldn't be there, we shared our perspective. we under estimated the expectation to attend the meeting on thursday in person, so we are sending an appropriate representative to participate. we take this issue very seriously and are committed to staying engaged in this discussion, as the administration and congress work toward a consensus on the right path forward. joining me now is the democratic senator from connecticut, richard blumenthal, who will soon take action on a bill. tell us first of all about the bill you intend to introduce. >> the bill i intend to introduce really has to be seen as part of a comprehensive set of measure
pro-gun, even pro-nra people support and there is a possibility you could get high capacity magazines through the house but whatever happens, it seems like the senate will -- >> i hope we get votes. one of the things i was offended by in the simpson/bowles process was people never knew how their member of the house or senate felt because they didn't have clean up or down votes. i think we're owed that. >> the not so bad world you're correct. we should have votes up and down on this. i think right now the people who are the obstructionists, the republicans, the gun lobby, are talking more reasonably than they will a month or two or three down the road when some of these things come up for possible votes. more important than deciding to have a big package, the only way this will succeed is if the president can keep up the intensity level on his side, on the side of those people who want to see these things passed. we know that the gun lobby and the gun fanatics will be very intense not just tomorrow but six months from now and a year from now and to overcome that opposition, which will
know i'm going to get booed but when i listen to the leadership of the nra saying we need more guns in the schools, i could vomit. >> those kids might have been alive if -- >> this meeting was in the city of vampa, california, wine country. many called for better access to mental health care as well. >>> as you saw the debate over gun violence reaches far and wide from town halls to the white house. vice president joe biden's gun violence task force meeting face-to-face this week with the national rifle association, the nra. vice president's team also going to sit down with top executives in the entertainment industry and the video game industry. retail giant walmart was also invited but walmart is not going to show up. in a statement walmart said "we were invited to attend the meeting on thursday, and we had scheduling conflicts. we're going to continue to stay engaged in this topic going forward." cnn reached out to walmart this morning, and it said, not attending the meeting "should not be interpreted as a slight or a diss." walmart would not confirm reports they're the largest r
president joe biden meets today with the nra and wal-mart that is set to be a pretty contentious meeting. two powerhouses in the gun industryer this, but biden's comments got gun owners fired up yesterday. here is some of that. >> the president is going to act. there are executive orders, there are executive action that can be taken. we haven't decided what it will be yet but we're compiling it all with the help of the attorney general and rest of the cabinet members as well as legislative action we believe that is required. bill: this is top pick a, now. stephen hayes, senior writer "weekly standard." good morning to you. >> good morning, bill. bill: what type of order would fit an executive mandate in this case? >> there are a couple different things the white house is considering. one would be harvesting the information already available to a wide variety of government agencies and passing that onto the fbi for inclusion in its database about who can and can not buy guns. things that would indicate mental health problems, what have you. i think there are also potentially looking at re
, but instead with the nra and then the overture to walmart, which is the world's largest retailer, and by in accounts one of the largest sellers of guns and ammunition, this is warp speed in terms of movement. the nra said it was going to send someone to learn. >> reporter: a rep. >> and walmart said they were busy and they changed that. characterize what's going on. >> reporter: that's right. it's kind of interesting what happened with walmart. essentially, they had pointed out that they had already had a meeting at the white house with the vice president and his group this week. and i checked with the white house, and they confirmed that, in fact, they had a phone meeting with them. so some sort of a phone conference call. but no face-to-face meeting. and what walmart was explaining is that the point people that they have who would be attending a meeting like this were busy at a meeting in arkansas, and that's why they could not make it. but it was certainly a pr problem for them. a lot of raised eyebrows that they would not be sending one here. and then they did that reversial,
to be confirmed. since then, they have not had a director confirmed. the nra and other organizations have blocked any nomination as a result of that. host: we can get into that in this segment of the washington journal, focusing on the atf. calls are open -- phone lines are open for your calls. george's waiting from ohio on our independent line. good morning. caller: good morning. this is about control. i've understand there's a product called ssar-15 that enables a semi-automatic gun to converted to an automatic operation, like a machine gun. why would atf approve such a device for public? guest: you are getting into some technicalities of the atf's regulatory power. one of the things they constantly face is the issue of the second amendment and there's only so much they can do if congress does not allow them to ban a particular product, there's not much they can do as far as prohibiting it from being sold. that's one of the problems in recent years with the assault weapons ban, which is now being discussed again. it recently expired. it prevented the sale of certain firearms, semi-automatic fir
member of the nra. people who have been affected by gun violence, people have used guns to protect themselves and their families. we wanted this to try to be a discussion and get a lot of different view points in and see if there are any common grounds between those who are great advocates for more gun control and advocates for gun rights opposed to greater gun control or greater background check. so we wanted to try to look for common ground and not just look at guns but also mental health issues and where that is in the equation and school safety issues. it's going to be an interesting discussion tonight, wolf. >> i'm really looking forward to it. i hope you find common ground. this is a critically, critically important issue for our entire country. anderson's town hall tonight, 8:00 p.m. eastern, only here on cnn. >>> up next, a catastrophic flooding taking an enormous economic toll on australia and they have an impact felt around the world. ake someone happy.♪ ♪it's so important to make someone happy.♪ ♪make just one heart to heart you - you sing to♪ ♪one smile that
